On arrival at the harbour car park, Mr S started sorting out his kayak, this would normally take him about three quarters of an hour, long enough for me to go and explore the village itself.
On returning to the car park the kiosk there had also opened so I paid our £2 to park for the day, and Mr S was ready to go. It was time to help to carry the kayak down to the sea, which was hard work as tide was out and kayak was loaded with goodness knows what, so heavy!
Small copper butterfly
large skipper butterfly
White lady rock
Mr S arriving at lunch time rendezvous
where is she?
Lunch over back to path.
Adult and young pied wagtail
There is just something about churches and grave yards by the sea!
Great perch for a pipit
I kept seeing blue butterflies at this point but wrong side of coast path and it was quite a steep drop, so not going to follow!
Stopped here for a while hoping that butterflies would come to me instead, I do like sitting amongst the heather!
look hard and you can see it
No not Mr S, This, I believe this is a Grayling butterfly
Last view of Mr S.
ravens in synchronised flight
twisted gorse stems.
back to car to await the safe return of Mr S. At least the tide is in so won't have to carry kayak quite so far this time!
and things can go badly wrong!
Mr S did get back to car safe, but another sea kayaker who was out with a group, hurt his back while they were out, they pulled in at Camaes with the intention of leaving him there and someone driving back to collect him later, but they found Mr S. sorting out his kayak with fortunately a rack for two kayaks on his car, so we took injured kayaker and his kayak back to his car at Church bay, before returning home.
